Summary

The apocalyptic saga continues in the exciting third volume of this best-selling series. In Nicolae, as the dramatic fulfillment of biblical prophecy is unleashed upon an astonished world, World War III begins. Although the small band of believers called Tribulation Force have been scattered by the outbreak of the war, they draw strength from their faith in Christ. Still working for Nicolae Carpathia, the evil world leader, Rayford Steele helps the believers by passing on information about Nicolae's devastating plans. But spiritual forces have an even greater use for Steele in their battle against the Antichrist.

The works of inspirational authors LaHaye and Jenkins have thrilled millions of readers worldwide, and Nicolae creates more breathtaking visions of what many believe will really happen. Through narrator Richard Ferrone's performance, the conflict builds to a fiery climax that will leave you eager for Soul Harvest, the next book in the series.

Great Read!

While the story surrounding the end-time events depicted in the Left Behind series is definitely extra-Biblical and fictionalized, the timeline of the events is based on the well-researched and Biblically accurate work of Dr. Tim LaHaye. Not all Christians will agree on the timeline and description of endtime events, but Dr. LaHaye's theological work on this subject is exhaustive and well-respected. The third installment in the series, Nicolae, continues the series with no reduction in Jenkins' mastery of dialogue and breathtaking suspense. As a side note, it always makes me giggle to see the psychopathic anti-faith ranting of pseudo-intellectual pinheads who try to minimize the seriousness of the issue of faith while hypocritically spending the time necessary to write an offensive and inane comment. If the issue of faith is that repugnant and idiotic to you, why bother? Go back to your mind-meld with Nietzsche and Richard Dawkins, and leave people of faith in peace.

Horrible Narration

What disappointed you about Nicolae?

Not to be stereotypical but they all sound like old jewish people. Love the series but narration is horrible.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Nicolae?

Couldn't get past the voices.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The monotone narration and similarity of all the character voices.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment not in the story but the narration.

Meh

If you haven't heard the first 2 books, why would you start here? Not a lot of plot to be had... The main characters play a lot of phone tag. Also, the narrator read "Les Misérables" and pronounced it the same as Patrick Bateman. He would start off the dialogue in a scene in a halfhearted accent that would peter out before getting to the end of the scene.

Propaganda For Battle Interpretation of Bible

Review While the fictional story itself, (plot, characters, story arc, voice, etc...) are well done and flow well to create an exciting adventure sorry the theme this entire series rests upon is SO narrow minded and based upon such a poor, rigid, ignorant, and inaccurate interpretation of Biblical scripture; I cringe that it’s sold as many copies as it has. It’s frightening that anyone who of searching for Christ could pick up ANY of these books and think that the God and Jesus represented within them is an accurate depiction of our Creator and Redeemer and that those events are a true picture of God’s plan for our lives. I promised to read the entire series but in doing so was simply more disturbed with each book how twisted the authors narrow, rigid , homophobic, and fundamentalist view of Christianity was being used for propaganda under the guise of storytelling.

Great series

Although this is a fiction book, I find it helps me understand the book of Revelation. This is the best narrator I have found.

Faster Pacing Than The First Two Books, I Like It.

As I said with “Left Behind” and “Tribulation Force”: If you are a Christian, I would recommend this book to get a better idea of what the Events of the book of Revelation might be like for those experiencing the events described. If you are not a Christian, I would recommend this book to you as a story first, and not a fictionalization of things to come. If this series makes you crave answers to questions you’ve always had, then I would encourage you to seek those answers. If it doesn’t, so be it. As I mentioned in the title, “Nicolae” has a faster pacing than the first two books, which I enjoyed. The first two were enjoyable, but had a slower, drawn out pace to them, with one larger pay off towards the end. “Nicolae”, however, had more of a cinematic pace, with several build ups reaching their climax, before slowing down for a bit so the next build up can come. The only thing I can say about this book is that I am a little undecided about the handling of the 3rd and 4th seals. Don’t get me wrong, from a biblical perspective they were very accurate. It’s just that as hands on as the others were, I did notice that these two did play a smaller role. However, on the other hand it is a very realistic approach. If you are a Tribulation Saint you would of course recognize what is happening, but chances are If you live through many of the judgements, you might not experience all of them on a first hand basis. On the subject of narration, I found Ferrone’s acting to be much more enjoyable compared to the first two books. While still a little dry at times, I found the emotion, pacing, and voices to be more well-conveyed. Carpathia’s faint, but still present Romanian accent was excellent, as was Ben-Juda’s much thicker Israeli accent. Loretta’s southern accent, something not mentioned till this book, was also acted very well. Even thing’s Ferrone seemed to struggle with before, like when a character was crying while speaking, seeming earnest, angry, or acting a man’s versus a woman’s voice was comparatively exceptional.

world war III covert espionage.

the book was good, I listened to this right after I finished "Tribulation Force" and it gets really good towards the middle, there's a great scene with Buck driving a bus (I won't say more) also some very heartwarming and spiritual parts along with a lot of cheesy dialogue ( which I kind of have a thing for) its a great mix of storytelling that will keep interested till the last second.
